Did you know that the clever cycle route network where you cycle from junction to junction is a Limburg invention? 2000 km of metalled, safe and mostly car-free cycle paths. And the well-known blue signs along the route ensure that you don’t get lost. It's just relaxed cycling!
Extra large cycling
You don’t remain a cycling paradise without effort! That is why we do our very best to stay at the top by offering cyclists a unique experience. For example, you can now cycle through the water in Bokrijk and soon you will also be able to cycle among the treetops in Bosland. Curious about everything we’re planning? Discover all our innovative projects.
Prepare your cycle tour yourself at home with the online route planner. Of course, you can also follow one of the off-the-shelf themed cycle routes that we have already devised especially for you. If you want to have these routes in your pocket at all times, download the Limburg Cycling Paradise app. Now you know where you are going to cycle, you just have to decide what bike you are going to use. Huh? Yes, your own bike is good enough, but you can also hire a real Limburg Cycling Paradise bike, or an e-bike, or a tandem, or...
...is half the work
Are you planning to tour Limburg more often? Then the cycle map with information booklet is a good idea. It contains all the information you could ever need, such as a list of all the cycling cafés, where to enjoy a cold beer, and all the cyclist-friendly accommodation where you can enjoy a good night’s sleep.
Cycling through the Trees
You can find this cycling experience in Hechtel-Eksel, at Pijnven in the Bosland forest, at junction 272 of the cycle route network.
It is no coincidence that Cycling through the Trees (#FDDB) is located in Bosland. The largest uninterrupted forest area in Flanders unites man and nature. Each of the four municipalities in Bosland has its own theme. For Hechtel-Eksel, this is “The tree in...” Cycling through the Trees (#FDDB) now gives Hechtel-Eksel its own landmark.
Just like Cycling through Water, this cycle path offers a unique cycling experience in harmony with the natural environment. By unlocking the fabulous Bosland with such spectacular results, visitors can experience this natural world in a very special way. You become one with the forest.
The path gradually rises to a height of 10 metres and is 700 metres long with a diameter of 100 metres. The Corten steel pillars are situated at varying intervals of 1, 2 and 3 metres apart and symbolise the straight trunks of the fir trees, ensuring that the structure fits beautifully into the environment.
